This is part two of an interview I recorded live at the inaugural Yack Festival at Giant Dwarf a few weeks ago.
Stan Grant is a journalist, author and presenter who has worked all over the world for the likes of CNN, Sky News, SBS World News, NITV, the Guardian and the ABC. He is a Wiradjuri man who writes and speaks about race, racism and history in Australia, most recently in his Quarterly Essay released last year, The Australian Dream. He has just become the ABC’s Chief Asia Correspondent and will host a nightly discussion show on ABC News next year.
In this second part of our conversation, I ask Stan about one or two things I’ve heard about him and picked his brain on his critics, plus we take some questions from the floor. I feel very lucky to have the opportunity to pick Stan’s brain. Big thanks to the Giant Dwarf and Yack for having us and to all the Sydney friends who came along.
Due to Tonightly (my cool TV show that you can watch every bloody night of the week!), I won’t be able to bring you another podcast for a little while I’m afraid. But hey, there’s a back catalogue of 121 episodes for you to enjoy at your leisure. YOU ARE WELCOME.
Check out #Tonightly please!
